Mimi Maniscalco, an assistant principal in New Canaan, has been named the new principal at Dwight Elementary School, effective July 1.

Maniscalco takes over for Scott Bannon, who took an indefinite personal leave of absence from the award-winning school in April. In May, he resigned effective at the end of the academic year with no public explanation of his abrupt departure. He was appointed Dwight's principal in July 2012.

She has been interim assistant principal at Saxe Middle School in New Canaan since February, but had worked as a teacher in Fairfield for 14 years prior to that.

Maniscalco also has experience as an early literacy tutor and reading coach, and worked as a preschool teacher for the Norwalk YMCA before becoming a teacher in Fairfield. She also has two years experience in Fairfield as a summer school principal.

Maniscalco earned a bachelor's degree from Curry College and a master's and sixth-year degrees from Sacred Heart University.
